    Kicks of on Oct 25 (2 games: NSW v QLD in QLD, WA v SA in PERTH)

    Our first test against South Africa is on Nov 3 (In Perth).

    4 day break between the two

    I wonder if Boof will have any of them playing in the Shield opener, as a warm up?

    What a stuff up Starc's injury was... Apparently his wound hasn't fully healed yet? Fingers crossed it's not gonna hold him back this summer, interesting to see how he goes over the next few days.

    Starc is picked but he can be rested in the second innings and replaced by the Rug.

    Looks like cricket's version of the bench.

    His missus said during the NSW v Vics one dayer last Friday that he was gonna have a bowl after that game, and also would be playing in the Shield game, and that he cant wait for the test. Hopefully its not all gas talk and he is fit and raring to go come Nov 3

    Anyone know of any legal live streams of the Shield games. I have the next 2 days off work, wouldnt mind watching a bit of it. Though by the looks of it, all 3 games are Day nighters

    Cricket Australia website are streaming it.
    From memory it's normally just a crappy webcam with no commentary or anything though. Could be different this year I guess.

    Depends on who's hosting I think. South Australian home games have commentary I think, maybe NSW as well?

    Yeah the Redbacks normally do a good job of it.

    Looks like it's crappy webcam and no commentary for QLD v NSW and VIC v TAS today.

    Kurtis Patterson loves a partnership.
    131 with Henriques in the Matador Cup final, and now just brought up 200 partnership with Steve Smith at the Gabba.

    It does continue a trend though.
    NSW 2-229 before the lights came on, currently 2-30 after they've come on.

    This is from Day/Night Sheffield Shield matches last year:
